CRR No.1477 of 2018
In the matter of:- Amar Kumar Pal Anr. . … Petitioners.
Ms.Shrestha Bhattacharjee … for the petitioners
Mr.Imran Ali. .. for the State.
This is an application for expeditious disposal of the trial in G.R.Case No.1463 of
2000 pending before the learned Judicial Magistrate, 2nd Court at Barasat, North 24-
Parganas under Section 498A of the Penal Code
The learned Advocate appearing on behalf of the petitioners submits that in this
case an FIR was lodged as far back as in the month of October, 2000 and the charge-
sheet was submitted in the month of January, 2002. He further submits that in spite of
two successive orders passed by this Hon’ble Court directing expeditious disposal of
the present proceeding, the trial has not been concluded.
Let a copy of this application be served upon Mr.Imran Ali, learned Advocate, who is
present in court today and who ordinarily appears on behalf of the petitioner, His
engagement will be regularized in due course.
Heard the learned Advocates for the petitioners and the State and went through the
It appears that on 04.12.2009 this Hon’ble Court in CRR No.3923 of 2009 directed
the learned court below to conclude the trial as expeditiously as possible, preferably
within a year after framing of charge and by strict compliance with the provision of
Section 309 of the Code. Thereafter, on 27.03.2017, this Hon’ble Court again passed
a direction for expeditious conclusion of the trial, preferably within a year from the date
of communication of this order.
The learned Advocate for the petitioners submits that in spite of those orders
passed by this Hon’ble Court, the proceedings have gone on for so long and on some
pretext or the other, the same is kept pending.
It is very unfortunate that two solemn orders passed by this Hon’ble Court have not
been adhered to.
I hereby direct the learned Trial Court to conclude the proceedings as
expeditiously as possible, preferably within a period of six (6) months from this date
and by a strict compliance with the mandate of Section 309 of the Code.
The revisional application is disposed of.
Urgent photostat certified copy of this order, if applied for, is to be given to the
parties upon usual undertakings.
